Messy Bun: The Swirl For Fine Hair

EXPERT TIP

This elegant coif is easy to achieve and only takes a few bobby pins to secure hair into a soft, messy bun.

HOW TO ACHIEVE THE LOOK

STEP 1

Wash and condition hair.

STEP 2

Towel-dry hair until damp and scrunch with a towel to help prevent damage and split ends.

STEP 3

Cover a skeleton brush in mousse and work it through your hair.

STEP 4

Separate hair into 8-10 sections, each approximately 2 inches. We recommend 3-5 sections within the middle of your hair, and 2 each for the left and right sides of your hair. Starting with the top middle section of your head (right at the crown), place tips of the hair over a large Velcro roller and roll the hair up to the scalp. Repeat in a descending fashion down the middle of your head.

STEP 5

For the sides of your hair, split each into two sections-a top and bottom section. Start with the top section of the hair; hold the roller sideways (the open end point upward) and place the tips of the hair over the roller, rolling up to the scalp. Repeat with the bottom layer as well as the other side. Rollers should be sideways and away from your face, as this will help create volume at the roots.

STEP 6

Once all rollers are in place, blow-dry hair until it is completely dry. Remove all rollers, taking out the bottom ones first, and then the top. Brush hair with a flat brush from root to tip.

STEP 7

Using your flat brush, gather all hair into a ponytail at ear-level. Brush the front of your hair, starting with the middle and then the right and left sides, to ensure the front of the hair is smooth, then secure the ponytail with a rubber band.

STEP 8

Divide the ponytail into three sections; pin the middle section of hair above the rubber band with a bobby pin, securing the pin one inch down from the tips of the hair. Leave the ends out in a spiky fashion. Take the right section of the hair, and roll this over the rubber band (making a small mound) and secure the section with a bobby pin, again leaving one inch of the ends sticking out in the lower left-hand part of the hair. Repeat with the remaining section of the hair, roll over the rubber band (crossing over the right strand of hair) and secure with a bobby pin in the bottom right-hand side of the hair.

STEP 9

Seal this messy bun with an aerosol extra-hold hairspray, spraying it about 10 inches away.
